Pump House Music Works is thrilled to welcome Lead Guitarist for Paul McCartneys Wings and Two Time Grammy Winner Laurence Juber for a night of solo guitar music like you've never heard it before! Join us and enjoy what's sure to be an incredible show with our full bar in the warm and intimate atmosphere of the Pump House! 

About Laurence Juber:
"GRAMMY® winning guitarist Laurence Juber is a solo performer, recording artist, composer and arranger. His playing fuses folk, jazz, blues, pop and classical styles, creating a multi-faceted performance that belies the use of only one instrument.
A music graduate of Londons Goldsmiths College, he was featured guitar soloist with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra before becoming established as a studio musician in the mid-1970s. First internationally recognized as lead guitarist in Beatle Paul McCartney's Wings, with whom he won a Grammy, Juber has since established himself as world-renowned guitar virtuoso and entertainer.

Juber, known to his fans as LJ, has released 25 solo albums which spotlight his unique touch and tone on acoustic guitar. The latest, LJ Can't Stop Playing The Beatles! is the third in his series of arrangements by the Fab Four.

His LJ Plays The Beatles was voted one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine's all-time Top Ten albums. His solo arrangement of The Pink Panther Theme earned him a second Grammy, while his arrangement of Stand By Me was heard nationally in a Diamonds Are Forever commercial. Jubers DVD-Audio project Guitar Noir (AIX Records) won a CES Demmy award for best audio.

His 'photo memoir' Guitar With Wings was recently published by Dalton Watson Fine Books.

As a studio musician, he can be heard on recordings from artists as diverse as Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks, Seal and the French chanteuse Sylvie Vartin, plus he is featured on the soundtracks to hundreds of TV shows such as Home Improvement and movies including the academy award-winning Dirty Dancing, Good Will Hunting and Pocahontas.

Juber co-composed the soundtrack of the award-winning video game Diablo III and scored the NBC Dateline documentary Children Of The Harvest. His music is also featured in the Ken Burns documentary The Tenth Inning."

Join us as we welcome Connecticut duo, Belle of the Fall, to Pump House Music Works! We're super excited to have these indie folk artists! Belle of the Fall is a band consisting of singer and guitarist Julia Autumn Ford and multi-instrumentalist Tracy Walton.

As described by the Block Island Music Festival, "To say that Belle of the Fall lead singer, Julia Autumn Ford possesses the voice of an angel is beyond obvious. Soft, tender, and raw all at once; Julia’s vocal delivery is light as a feather yet powerful enough to knock down an entire city block with one turn of a phrase. Her partner in crime, bassist Tracy Walton, rounds out Belle of the Fall’s folky yet modern sound. You will want to take note of this performance as it’s one of those “I saw them when they were still playing bars” moments”.
